I am excited and anxious to begin my graduate program this fall. The staff and faculty have been helpful in the admissions, advising, and financial aid processes. Being a full-time professional, I am thankful for the faculty's flexible class schedule and accessibility.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I am proud to say that I am a graduate student at Elmhurst College. This college is well respected and the educators and advisors are superb. It is a small college with a hometown feel, but it gives you everything you need. My graduate program has well equipped me with the skills I will need when I enter the work force. The only cons are that as a graduate student you are concentrated with your small cohort and may not get to experience all that this wonderful campus has to offer.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Elmhurst College is a great place to get your MBA. With a director who is constantly trying to give MBA students a perfect balance of both experience and textbook learning. It's a small school, and an even smaller program (20). The MBA is split in two cohorts. For a solid year, you get to know your cohort, and build strong personal and professional relationships through stress and joy. The second year of the MBA program then splits off into specializations, where the group gets even smaller.(4) With this small group, you're able to get all the attention you need in order to thrive in your work place, or potential work place. Elmhurst College is highly recommended. I love it so much, I not only have an undergrad from there, and working on my MBA, but I start this fall for my second master's degree in CIS.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Elmhurst College is a wonderful school that values each and every one of its students. The professors know you personally, and really want you to succeed. The quality of education I am receiving is outstanding, I am learning everything I need to know and beyond. I would recommend this school to any student who prefers a small classroom environment and daily interaction with faculty and staff!

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program of Speech-Language Pathology is highly competitive. The only con is the amount of work needed to go into succeeding. Otherwise it is a very rewarding career path and the program has a very wonderful framework at Elmhurst College.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Elmhurst college is an excellent place to get an MBA. It is cheaper than downtown Chicago schools, and the level of academia is exactly the same. Pros: Affordable Work Schedule Flexibility Accessibility to all campus amenities Faculty are either Adjunct and hold other jobs or are recently out of workforce Cons: Bookstore hours Mandatory weekend class for one month Classes are held back-to-back one night a week

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The Elmhurst Masters of Science Degree is going to be an invaluable tool to help me assist my company as it grows from a 500 million dollar company to a 10 billion dollar company. The logistical landscape is going to change significantly. This degree program will give me the tools and knowledge to make a sustainable efficient supply chain system. The program is the only one of its kind in the entire Chicagoland area.

Elmhurst College is a great private institution. The faculty is wonderful and very welcoming and students are nice. It is a small school surrounded by a great neighborhood. I am pleased with my selection of this college for graduate school and whenever I mention Elmhurst College, everyone raves about how much of a great school this is. I am a proud Blue Jay!
